I'm Kristina, a Business Immigration Attorney in Houston, Texas. I am an Associate at the law firm of Reddy & Neumann, P.C., where we provide prompt, practical and professional representation of employers and employees in U.S. immigration law matters.
A little about me - I was born and raised in Houston, and I earned my Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting in 2008 from the University of Houston and headed straight to law school. I then earned my law degree from the University of Houston Law Center in May 2011. Before entering the practice of immigration law, I represented clients in personal injury suits, assisted in contract disputes, commercial and business litigation, and provided administrative counsel and litigation services for healthcare professionals across Texas.
While working in the H-1B Department at Reddy & Neumann, P.C., my practice covers all phases of the non-immigrant visa process including filing H-1B, H-4, and H-4EAD petitions, responding to Requests for Evidence (RFEs), and drafting motions and appeals. I have completed over 300 RFEs to date in response to H-1B, L-1, TN, AOS, N-400, and OPT applications. I also create webinars and presentations in I-9 compliance for HR professionals, as well as for foreign students regarding CPT, OPT, STEM OPT, H-1B, and the green card process.
I also work with the Reddy &Neumann, P.C. Litigation Team, where I advise clients regarding litigation options in federal court pursuant to the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) regarding unreasonable delays in adjudication, denials, or shortened approval notices. We are currently working on filing a lawsuit challenging Presidential Proclamation 10052, which was designed to prevent the certain nonimmigrant visa holders from entering the United States (H-1B, H-2B, L-1, and J visa holders).
I created this blog because of the constantly changing world of immigration. I found myself providing daily updates on my LinkedIn and I thought that having one place for immigration information, news, and updates would be more helpful to the community to navigate the complex world of immigration.
With that being said, welcome to my blog - Navigate Immigration!
